BAKING BARBECUES DODGEBALL HIDE & SEEK MOVIE NIGHTS POOL SWIMMING IT'S ALL HERE
Here at Twyford, we provide a modern flexi-boarding experience in a safe, friendly, family-orientated environment. Everyone looks out for each other, and our core values of friendship, respect, honesty, kindness and responsibility are evident in every aspect of boarding life.
It is also great fun, with lots of activities to enjoy, including such highlights as weekly barbecues in the summer, movie nights with cupcakes, our giant games of hide-and-seek in the School grounds or our legendary dodgeball games in the Sports Hall when the nights draw in.
We extend flexi-boarding for families that wish to access the convenience of boarding, whether it’s for a one or two night stopover, the occasional sleepover to attend a club, or for a full week; we’re happy to work around you.
Pupils may board from Year 4. While parents of younger children often prefer to start off by taking advantage of the flexi-boarding arrangements, by the time pupils reach Years 7 and 8, many of them board on a weekly basis.
International pupils are very welcome at Twyford as long as their parents are living in the UK for the duration of their time at the school.
Set within its own beautiful grounds of 2.36 acres, our new Boarding House, Orchard Close, is adjacent to our current school premises. After extensive refurbishment, it was opened in the Summer Term 2022, and it has been an exciting and highly beneficial addition to the School. Enjoying accommodation that would not be out of place in a hotel, the pupils have revelled in the space and opportunities provided by this impressive new facility.
Orchard Close is a modern, bright and comfortable home from home, with 16 en-suite rooms, each sleeping between three and eight boarders. It offers a friendly, family atmosphere with an art room, boarders’ kitchen, games room, music practice room, as well as plenty of outdoor space, allowing opportunities for lots of exciting activities. This new development enabled us to realise our plan to provide a ‘state of the art’ modern boarding facility, capable of delivering extended flexi-boarding opportunities to the many more children who wish to experience this at Twyford. It also provides greater flexibility for families to access boarding at shorter notice.
Boarding at Twyford prepares children for their future senior schools. Our boarding team and Matrons provide exceptional support for all the children, while helping them to develop an independence that will give them confidence when the time comes for their transition to senior schools.
This safe and homely environment exudes a strong sense of community where friendships are built and flourish across all ages.
